Victory Model Railway Club


Recommended Posts

Our History

The club was formed on 9th February 1982 by a local radio station, Radio Victory, and the Fratton Bargain Shop. The club was formally known as the "Radio Victory" model railway club. The name was changed to simply "Victory" Model Railway Club


In 1989, due to the expansion of the business, the club had to find new accommodation. The club moved to Aldershot where it met regularly for around a year, then the club was fortunate enough to find new accommodation back in Portsmouth.


We now meet at St James Church Milton Portsmouth.


Our Mission


The club's aim is to provide an environment where model railway and train enthusiasts of all backgrounds and levels of interest and experience can meet, and discuss their hobby. The main activity of the club is the design and building of club-owned railway layouts.



The experience of the club's members spans many years and all aspects of modeling are covered. From designing and building track layouts, wiring and building control mechanisms, to the maintenance of rolling stock; all are available.

With us you can be involved in anything from building the legs on which the layouts are mounted, to laying the track, to modelling and landscaping the track, to testing and running rolling stock. As well as club meetings we also exhibit our layouts several times a year and this will give you the opportunity to run a full layout.

The club engages in a full social life. This includes visits to many model railway exhibitions around the country and the annual dinner.


That said, the club always welcomes new members with different skills, or just a willingness and enthusiasm to learn. At the end of the day, the real aim of the club is simply to have fun!
